I've been attracted to this for a while.

The feeling after a good decluttering session.
The feeling when you're living of just a box of luggage full of USEFUL things when you're on a long holiday.
The feeling that I get from having a clear idea as to where everything is at in the house.
These feelings are very difficult to beat.

I spent about 3 hours cleaning up my big pile of official paperworks yesterday.
Down to only the necessities now and feels very light.

The goal is to work it down to the minimum. :)
Only retain things that are necessary and useful - not clutters.
I've noticed that it is definitely much easier to appreciate and use all that I have when we're down to the minimum.

Intrinsic vs Extrinsic Goals

I read somewhere today that it is much better to work on intrinsic (inwardly) goals than on extrinsic goals, e.g. wealth, power and social acceptance. It makes me realise that I've been working on extrinsic goals all this time. It has come the time for me to work out what my Intrinsic Goals are.

I need to do this quick. So that I can then focus on working on my intrinsic goals...

Photojojo Mania

I stumbled upon the Photojojo Store and they have some super cute items...


The Super-Secret Spy Lens!

Magnetic Photo Rope

The Doodle Frame

This would probably make a really nice birthday idea *hint hint* :P

I've always liked September.

It's the start of Spring time in Melbourne; hence the great weather.
People starts heading out.
Plus, it's the month of my birthday celebration. ;)

This year, it has been and will be an even more exciting time.

I'm moving on from my current job.
I've just moved in to our first owned home (with Shanon) - nesting heavily and loving it.
I'm feeling healthier than a month ago - though I still need to work on my food intake a bit more.
I'm discovering that life is really what you make of it.
So I'm going to make the most of it! ;)

I really like the following Zen Habits' posts:
- Work as Play
- The Minimalist Principle: Omit Needless Things

Loving September!
